Residents, Families and Partners:

As promised, we wanted to provide you an update on what is going on in our Community related to COVID.

After our most recent round of weekly testing on a random portion of our staff and residents, we had no new positive cases.  We are currently awaiting additional testing kits so we can conduct testing on all staff and residents.  We do have some kits available to do in-house testing of residents that may display signs or symptoms of the virus.  We have been told the kits may come in today, but the holiday tomorrow may delay the receipt.

Visitation Update



December 7, 2020


Resident and Families:

I am sure many of you are aware of the current surge in COVID positive cases throughout the country and in California.  Given this surge, we wanted to provide you an update with what is going on related to COVID in our Community.

As of the date of this letter, we have had not positive cases for our residents or our staff members.  We continue to engage in infection control measures to prevent the spread of the virus into our building.  Part of this effort is to encourage residents (and urge families to encourage residents) to:

  • Wearing masks when outside of their rooms;
  • Engaging in good hand hygiene; and
  • Practicing social distancing when outside of their rooms.

We have been assessing and monitoring staff and residents for signs and symptoms of the virus and residents for any changes in condition on a regular basis.  Should we note any changes with a resident, we will contact resident’s primary healthcare provider and family/responsible parities to discuss next steps.  We also have access to a limited amount of rapid on-site COVID tests if signs or symptoms are noted.

We are still closed to indoor visitation.  However, appointments for outdoor visits can be scheduled by contacting our Activity Director, Louisa Barrera.

Thank you for all of your support during this pandemic.  We will provide you with updates about any changes in our Community or when we learn about the availability and timing of vaccines for our residents.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.



Kandy Franklin
Executive Director



Information Regarding Visitation

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
